Yuriy Posudin, Nadiya Massjuk, Galyna Lilitskaya

Abstract


This article represents 30 years of scientific cooperation on the study of the basic biology of photomovement in algae between the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine (Prof. Yuriy Posudin) and the M.G. Kholodny Institute of Botany of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (Prof. Nadiya Massjuk and Dr. Galyna Lilitskaya). The research has focused on two species of Dunaliella Teod., D. salina Teod. and D. viridis Teod., as the principal organisms investigated, and the practical application of these algae in areas such as biomonitoring of the environment, biotechnology, and the use of these organisms for the synthesis of useful natural products.
